Benefits of higher gas prices

(WFLX) - There are some benefits to higher gas prices!

If you're in the market for a bigger car, like an SUV, sticker prices should fall as gas prices rise. Wait for prices to hit $5 or $6 a gallon, and you should get an even better deal.

But if you want a more fuel-efficient car, get one now.

Rising gas prices should also prod American car makers to keep vehicle prices down.
